Project Length: Ongoing
We live in a world designed for adults by adults. This fact changes the concept of human-centered design to adult-centered design. Productive Pranks is a piece of design fiction which explores this idea.
Productive Pranks is a grassroots movement for kids to take on the problem of traditional schools. The overall idea is that kids will buy pranks which they will use in class when they are bored, hungry, or being bullied. These products will cause disruptions and distractions in class making it hard for Teachers, Admissions, and Insinuations to do their jobs. Therefore making it impossible to ignore the problems they having been ignoring for years. The data will then populate into a website in the vein of ratemyprofessor.com. This way people can access data that is useful to changing the poor school system.
